METEOROLOGICAL INFORMATION FOR VERTICAL AND SHORT TAKE-OFF AND LANDING (V/STOL) AIRCRAFT IN BUILT-UP URBAN AREAS: AN ANALYSIS

An analysis was conducted to identify potential meteorological problems of terminal operations of V/STOL aircraft in built-up urban areas, and to evaluate the adequacy of existing meteorological information to achieve satisfactory development and ensure safe, expeditious operation of a V/STOL transportation system. The proposed climatological survey includes meteorological observations at three locations including a typical STOL port site and a reference site at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport.
